GIC and ESR Cayman to acquire Australia property portfolio

Real Estate Agent

Substances of GIC and Hong Kong-recorded ESR Cayman have gone into an agreement on Saturday with reserves managed by Blackstone to acquire a property portfolio in Australia for A$3.8 billion (S$4.1 billion). 

In an exchange documenting on Sunday, ESR Cayman said the property portfolio is the "largest coordinations portfolio at any point put to market in Australia". 

Subject to consolidation clearance approval in South Korea and China, Bidco - a substance 20 percent possessed by ESR Cayman and 80 percent claimed by GIC (Realty) - will go into unit sale agreements with the Blackstone assets for the acquisition of the property portfolio. 

The portfolio involves 45 industrial and coordinations real estate assets in Australia with an aggregate land area of 3.6 million sq m and a structured net leasable area of 1.4 million sq m. 




The aggregate value of the portfolio was A$3.43 billion based on valuations controlled by free property valuers. The property portfolio has an initial yield of 4.5 percent and a weighted average lease expiry of 6.9 years. 

It incorporates assets situated inside the center industrial sub-markets of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, and Adelaide. 

GIC and ESR Cayman will co-put resources into the property portfolio by financing the acquisition in relation to their particular advantages. ESR Cayman will support A$753 million - being 20% of the consideration for the property portfolio and related expenses. 

Australia and New Zealand Banking Group, MUFG Bank, Standard Chartered Bank and United Overseas Bank are giving completely guaranteed obligation facilities to the acquisition of the real estate assets, ESR Cayman said. 

"With a quality blue-chip tenant pool, the property portfolio gives secure medium (to) long haul pay for Bidco," ESR Cayman said. "Given the ideal places of the properties and low site cover inside the portfolio, numerous near-term and longer-term redevelopment openings exist." 




The properties are being acquired on a 100 percent occupancy basis with two years of rental help given by the property merchants to any outstanding vacancies at the hour of fulfillment. 

Regarding the property acquisition, a subsidiary of ESR Cayman will also go into an agreement to purchase a substance that offers help and trustee administrations to the property portfolio. 

Following this, ESR Cayman hopes to give management administrations to the property portfolio, which will "significantly increase the common earnings generated from the gathering's Australian business".

"The gathering expects this acquisition will bring about it turning into the third-largest manager of coordinations real estate in Australia based on assets under management (AUM) and total area," ESR Cayman said, noticing its AUM would ascend to A$7.9 billion. 

Subject to the satisfaction of mandatory conditions, finishing the property acquisition is relied upon to take place by Oct 17, 2021.
